Father’s Day Grit Guide From 3M’s Sandpaper Division

It’s always tough finding a gift for Dad on Father’s Day — especially if you want to smooth things over after a rough year. Don’t go against the grain and let your gift get lost to the sands of time! Our Father’s Day Grit Guide will help you find just the right sandpaper grit for Dad this year.

A nod to the dad who coarsely asks, “Are you still going to be living with us when you’re forty?”

Quickly leave the room so your funny guy dad can show this to mom with a wink and a “stripping heavy wood” innuendo.

A slightly less-coarse way to ask dad, “Are you going to be living with us when you’re eighty?”

An A+ gift for the teacher dad who prefers the metric system.
